The Southern Kentucky Fair Is Back: Fun In Bowling Green, Kentucky

JC Phelps

Get ready for one of the best fairs of the year, as the Southern Kentucky Fair opens today (Wednesday, July 21st, 2021).

Local fairs are at the core of Kentucky culture. Growing up in rural Kentucky, it was one of the things that we looked most forward to during the summer. However, fairs aren't exclusive to rural communities -- and the Southern Kentucky Fair, which is held in Bowling Green, is a wonderful example of that.
